Boston Red Sox Sign Pat Light

The Boston Red Sox have signed supplemental first-round draft pick Pat Light, writes WEEI.com's Alex Speier. The Monmouth University product received a bonus of $1 million, which is below Major League Baseball's recommended slot signing bonus of $1.394 million for the 37th pick.

"He's a big (6-foot-3), strong pitcher whom the Sox saw sitting at 92 mph while working at up to 94-95 mph (something that gives the Sox some optimism that his fastball could tick up further) with a four-pitch mix, featuring both a curve and slider as well as a change, with a downhill fastball that has deception in the strike zone."

Of the three Red Sox first-round draft picks, Light is the only who has signed as of right now. The other two, Deven Marrero and Brian Johnson, remain unsigned. Johnson is currently playing in the College World Series for Florida University, and thus cannot sign until his team is out of the tournament.
